aspects. We would definitely use this company again."

Recognised as the 'Birthplace of British Tourism' in the late 18th Century, the Wye Valley Tour promises a sublime blend of breathtaking scenery. It's a place to escape, unwind and indulge in a truly relaxing holiday. And the best place to stay? One of our Symonds Yat holiday cottages, of course!
The village straddles the River Wye, with Symonds Yat West in Herefordshire and Symonds Yat East in Gloucestershire. Getting from one to the other involves a short, over-water trip by hand-pulled ferry; otherwise it's five miles by road.
Looming high above at a spectacular horseshoe bend, Yat Rock offers sweeping views over Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire. There's also a Peregrine Viewing Point from April to August, with RSPB staff on hand. Do also look out for barn owls, goshawks, badgers, foxes and fallow deer. Down below rapids race through the steeply wooded gorge - great for exciting journeys by canoe, kayak or white water raft. Other activities include walking riverside trails like the Wye Valley Walk and cycling along an old railway line.
Stomp through the woods to King Arthur's Cave. Play hide and seek in the Amazing Hedge Puzzle. Walk with butterflies at the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo. Have a fun day out at the riverside Leisure Park, with amusement rides, adventure playgrounds and river cruises. Or head for the nearest country pub and enjoy a drink and bite to eat.
Now take a look at our cottages in Symonds Yat and explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty soon!
